“The greatest thing in the world is to know how to belong to oneself.”- Michel de Montaigne

Aristotle said, “knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.”

Do you know yourself? Do you know what you want? Do you know who you really are?

It is important to connect with your true self. Many people are just wandering around without a clear understanding of who they really are. If you don’t meet your true self, if you don’t know who you are, if you don’t know what you want, how are you going to find greatness in life?

Let us face it. If you don’t know who you really are, it is going to be a big challenge to get anything of value done in your life. One of the reasons you exist is to get things done, is to live a fulfilled life, is to grow, is to expand. But if you don’t know what you want and who you are, how are you going to pursue greatness?

What does it mean to meet your true self?

Knowing and meeting your true self is important if you are to succeed in life. Your true self is your inner self. Your true self is your real self. This is the self you want to nurture if you are to succeed.

When you connect with your true self, life becomes easier to navigate. When you meet your true self, choices become easier to make. When you meet your true self, it becomes clear what you really want out of life. When you meet your true self, you start believe in yourself, you become fearless, you start to trust yourself more than before, and you are ready to take risks.

Your true self is who you are. Don’t try to be someone you are not. It is better to fail being yourself than to succeed being another person. Your life is yours, so enjoy it.

One of the reasons we live is to be our own master, is to control our lives, is to take charge of our lives. Taking control of our lives does not come easy in a society where everybody wants a piece of you. Everyone wants something from you. The question is: “Can you please everyone?”

“If you want to imitate anyone, imitate yourself.”

No, you can’t. That is if you are really honest with yourself. You cannot please everyone. If you try to do it, you will never have time for yourself. It is okay to listen to people, but don’t try to please everyone. If you do, you will fail.

You deserve a better life. You deserve to live your life in your own way. You deserve to have a healthy life. But if you put everyone’s interests before yours, you will find it difficult to live a good life.”

In the words of Marva Collins, “Trust yourself, think for yourself, act for yourself, speak for yourself, be yourself, imitation is suicide.” He is absolutely right. If you want to live your life in your own way, you MUST trust yourself. You must think for yourself. You must act for yourself. You must speak for yourself. You must be yourself. You MUST NEVER IMITATE ANYONE. If you want to imitate anyone, imitate yourself.

Imitate yourself, not others.
